Minor Works Cert

Minor Works Certificate

A safety certificate used when only an addition or alteration is made to an electrical installation and no new circuits have been added.

This safety certificate is issued to confirm that the minor electrical installation work to which it relates has been designed, constructed, inspected, tested and verified in accordance with the national standard for the safety of electrical installations, British Standard 7671 (as amended) - Requirements for Electrical Installations (the lEE Wiring Regulations).

Where, as will often be the case, the existing installation incorporates a residual current device (RCD), there should be a notice at or near the main switchboard or consumer unit stating that the device should be tested at quarterly intervals. For safety reasons, it is important that you carry out the test regularly..

Also for safety reasons, the complete electrical installation including the minor electrical installation works which is the subject of this certificate will need to be inspected and tested at appropriate intervals by a competent person. The NICEIC recommends that you engage the services of an Approved Contractor for this purpose. There should be a notice at or near the origin of the existing installation (such as at the consumer unit or main switchboard) which indicates when the inspection of the complete installation is next due.
